‘Regal Baby’ David Licauco becomes Kapuso network’s ‘Chinito Heartthrob’
Social media influencer, model and aspiring actor David Licauco has been tagged as the Kapuso Network’s “Chinito Heartthrob.”
He sure fits the name as he was 2014’s Mr. Chinatown first runner-up, and has recently signed up with GMA and Regal Films.
Licauco has joined the stellar cast of GMA 7’s upcoming fantaserye “Mulawin vs. Ravena”, the much-awaited sequel of the 2004 TV epic, “Mulawin”.
“I’ll be playing Malik. It’s a new character, I’ll be the best friend of Bea Binene, whose character was played by Angel Locsin before. I’ll be doing a lot of action stuff, ‘coz I heard there will be a lot of fight scenes,” he revealed.
His role requires a lot of physical activity. Hence, he does a lot of training to strengthen his body and pack more muscle. His workout also brought him back to martial arts such as Muay Thai, boxing and even arnis.
“Not many newbies get the chance to act alongside such established artists, and I’m still amazed by the sheer immensity of the entire production. Mounting a fantasy series with all the props and costumes is no joke. It’s almost like a Hollywood feel,” Licauco adds.
“This early, I’d like to thank the management and of course, the production staff for trusting me with this role. I’m still a work in progress, but I promise to give it my best shot.”
David is also working on a movie project for Regal Films, “Flames of Summer”, where he stars alongside Isabelle de Leon and Martin del Rosario.
He will also be guesting in GMA 7’s newly-launched teleserye, “Pinulot Ka Lang Sa Lupa”.
David is currently managed by ALV Talent Circuit and GMA Artist Center. JB
